After deer season is over I squirrel hunt this area. I've got the winter pattern for turkeys pretty much pinned down. Opening day I was in the middle of five gobblers within 1/4 mile. Missed the closest one as he took to a hen right.... Read More

The FLW pros have practiced for three days on Lake Hartwell, but all they can talk about is “fishing lousy weather” on the opening days of the tournament.

Capt. Kim Di Betta has over 40yrs fishing experience in the Delacroix area. I like to say i go catching instead of fishing. I fish all live bait (shrimp, minnows, croakers). You will fish aboard a 25ft by 9.6 wide stable Parker center console.
